I cook pork adobo and menudo for our dinner tonight my husband asking me to make them. He tried this food in one of the Filipino gathering we went. I am a little bit scared to do it at first because it is my first time to make this food and the fact that his daughter was in our place also because he invited her to come made me a little bit nervous. When the food is cooked I asked them to come to the table to eat and I am really nervous hoping that they both like the food I prepared. Luckily they both said that it was a good food and they like it. Although I make a little bit changes in some of the ingredients that supposed to be in the recipe.

We are so conscious about our weight that sometimes lead us on an improper diet. Eating little each time you feel hungry will help a lot to control yourself eating too much. I have some food to recommend here that will help reduce our appetite every time we feel hungry.
Eating this food will really help us a lot without sacrificing our health. Almonds is good because it has a fiber which helps naturally to suppressed hunger. Apple is a good source of pectin, an indigestible fiber that slows down the rate of stomach emptying. Pine nuts a good source of polyunsaturated fatty acids which cause secretion of two hormones. Oatmeal is a good breakfast because it is rich of fiber and a good source of complete carbohydrates which help stabilize insulin level. Egg it contains high protein which make it a natural hunger suppressant.

Including this food in your daily meals can really help a lot to make you stay fit and healthy. The natural benefits you will get in all this food will make your stomach happy and satisfied.
